I can't see The New York Giants running a west coast offense.
Has he had a bad year? Yeah, but thats not on him completely. His QB is not playing well and he has no OL. I don't see how Kubiak is any bit of an upgrade to what we have currently.
They're not kidding when they say "what have you done for me lately"....this guy was in the playoffs last year and he's canned mid-way through this year just like that. And I don't blame them, Texans and the Falcons have been the biggest let downs this year by far.
I really wouldn't mind seeing him replace KG if it comes down to it but I doubt KG goes anywhere as long as Coughlin is here. And Coughlin isn't leaving, nor do I want him to.
My complaints are:
a) When things don't go right, they go horribly wrong......how many Pick-6 plays on option route miscommunications do we need to see?
b) An over-reliance on wide receivers....this offense is a pass-first offense, which I've always disliked. It doens't really play into NY weather, either.
c) Too much stress on the offensive line......our line is bad to begin with.
d) Lack of creativity....no trick plays, very few reverses, counters......screenplays are awful.
e) Too time consuming.....trouble getting plays in from sidelines, numerous delay of game penalties.
f) Predictable.....same play calls every game, every season.
g) Unintuitive.....sometimes plays are called that defy explanation given down and distance, (passing long on 3rd and short), weather (throwing long into swirling winds), time (calling pass plays late with a lead when eating time off the clock is important).
I will say this....I don't blame Gilbride nearly as much for this season as Reese. In my opinion, Gilbride is mainly try to deal with a substandard roster that has degraded over time.
But I also think a more creative, more spontaneous coordinator would help improve this team. I'm very confident a better coordinator would have brutally exploited Dallas's non-existent run defense, and would have carved up their linebackers with play-action passes to running backs and tight ends.
In my opinion, Reese and Gilbride are the 2 biggest reasons why this team is on the outside looking in right now.
